Acts 4:23-31



Daring and Bold Wins

by Judy Webb and Gail Huberty

Have you ever been so passionate about something that you spoke with the intensity of a great warrior or scholar and had no idea where the words came from? Was there a time when you stood strong for a cause in a way that you would have never believed you could?

Perhaps this is the type of inner passion today’s scripture refers to as speaking the word of God boldly.

Peter and John were seized and taken to jail because of what they were sharing about Jesus. They were questioned and warned multiple times not to speak of or teach in the name of Jesus. Upon their release, Peter and John were even more intent on their mission.

They prayed; “Now Lord, consider their threats and enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness. Stretch out your hand to heal and perform miraculous signs and wonders through the name of your Holy Servant Jesus.” (verse 29)

Verse 31 goes on to say; After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly.
